A few details on making the PhD party decor-
fold book page in half and then in half again (tuck the second halves inside the fold so they’re hidden)
trim each end evenly and use decorative packing tape to seal off both ends
punch holes in the top and thread a pom pom or tassle through them… done! hang on the favor pegboard to display.
punch out a pile of same sized circles from an old book page (old text books are fun to use, especially if you can find one in the graduate’s area of study!)
fold the circles in half and glue the halves of two circles together. continue gluing halves together until you have a long, accordion like string of circles
place a doubled over loop of yarn into the center of the soon-to-be pomander and glue last two halves together
done! hang as party decor (these will double as Christmas ornaments later this year… love the double duty!)
print your message, one letter at a time, on old book pages
pin the pages to a ribbon
stitch along ribbon to secure the pages/letters in place and hang
punch circles in various sizes
run through the sewing machine to stitch together
hang around a chandelier- lovely!
Wow- I am impressed! Great decorations and creativity here:) I especially loved the little "how-to's" along the way- I'll definitely be making some of those pomanders!
i love the garland – that's such a simple but beautiful idea!
So many fabulous ideas! Thanks so much for this, I'll be linking.
Wonderful ideas! I love all the uses for books, pages, etc. I linked to this entry here, in case you'd like to link back:

What font did you use when printing the letters? I can't seen to find anything remotely close. THANKS! My sister is an English major and I just love these ideas!

Hey Leslie! You'll have to send over pictures if you make the book-page garlands. I think the font is called "Circus." I usually get my free fonts at dafont.com. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Did you actually put the dictionary pages through your printer?! That works?? Genius!
Miranda, yes! Just put them right through the printer…
